Sunstone & Moonstone

2 year olds and Foundation Stage 1

Sunstones

We have a setting which has 32 child places – 16 in the morning and 16 in the afternoon. The 2 year setting is based within the nursery unit.

We provide workshops for parents to help support their children. Currently we have, ‘Come and Read,’ workshops every Tuesday morning 8.30 –12.35 – ask our staff for further details about these.

We provide a 2 year old setting which is stimulating for the children and provides opportunities for children to have fun and learn through play activities. We endeavour to make learning fun and involve parents in their children’s learning and development at all stages.

Feel free to speak to any member of the team to find out more about what is happening in Sunstone – if you would like information about how you can access a place for your child then click here.

Moonstones

We have a setting which has 120 places for children aged three and four years old.  We have 60 places in the morning from 8:25am to 11.25 am and 60 places in the afternoon from 12:15pm to 3:15 pm.

A secure foundation stage supports each individual child’s development. Whilst children learn through play, we develop learning opportunities both inside and outside which are planned around their needs by developing their skills and capturing their interest.

We sing, use musical instruments and learn nursery rhymes with our children and we have regular Rhyme Time sessions on Thursdays from 11:10 am to 11:25 am and 3:00 pm to 3:15pm for parents to join us

Staff assess and review learning on a regular basis and we share children’s development with parents termly.

Each half term we celebrate achievement with a rewards assembly on the last Wednesday of the half term. Parents are invited to watch their children receive their awards in the foundation setting.

We have opportunities for parents to read with their children each term. Parents are invited to read with their children once a term for the last 30 minutes of a session.

In Moonstones the children are always encouraged to help us to establish and follow our rules and boundaries. The children continue to learn how to build friendships, secure existing friendships and make new friends.
